    Considering his obsession with lawns and his wife's with her bush, perhaps the Witwickys own a rather profitable gardening store, or maybe he's a retired landscape designer.

    Ron's not college-educated, but so aren't a lot of wealthy self-made people. He's most likely a successful small-business owner.

    Yeah I figure he runs his own business. He sort of acts like it.

    Well it helps when you are cheap. He was doing the path for his lawn and his wife called him cheap when she saw the cloud of carbon monoxide the old camaro let out.

    Even when bitching for more characterization, its important to remember, some things just don't matter.

    this! and you can bet they are footing the bill for Sam's Harvard education, that said i agree about the small business owner idea and now they get hush money from the government and seeing as they went to Paris id say a nice bit of it as well

    I think he owns his own business too, he's got a "I'm my own boss" kind of personality.

    I always wondered what Sam's dad did for a living.

    I mean, they have this rather large house in a relatively nice neighborhood, in which one of Sam's parents is head of the neighborhood crime watch. Sam's dad drives a rather nice, albeit classic, car. His parents went to Paris in ROTF, which hints that they had decent money to go on such a trip.

    Yet, Sam's dad didn't bother hiring somebody to put down a path through their backyard, he was working on it himself and Sam's mother complained that a stone was uneven or that a stone was wobbly. Sam's dad didn't want to spend no more than $4,000 to get Sam his first car, so he took him to the most questionable used car dealership that had nothing but old beaters. And Sam's dad made it obvious he finds the university Sam got accepted into as expensive.

    This leads me to assume that the family is within the range of middle to upper middle class. But what did Sam's parents do for a living so that they could afford such a nice house and a vacation in Paris, yet were so cheap in making their home so nice and getting Sam his first car... that's something I'd like to know.

    Perhaps the Witwicky inheritance is involved: Archibald must've been a successful explorer, and would've made lots of money before going insane. So Ron might be very picky about how he spends their wealth: seems like the Paris trip was one they were preparing for a while.

    That, or they're paid to keep quiet on the Autobots.
